After plenty of buzz across the city and Fairfield County over the past year, it's finally here: Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is opening its Harbort Point location to the public on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
Those that fell in love with the brand's original location in Syracuse or with its sister location in Harlem know that if you're a lover of all things smoked, grilled and smothered in barbeque sauce, this just might be your new favorite hangout.
Occupying a refurbished factory that was once part of the old Yale Lock Company, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que celebrated its opening Tuesday night with a private premiere party where guests were treated to a buffet of pork ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, mac & cheese, BBQ fried rice, macaroni salad, cornbread and cole slaw. A dessert of warm apple-cranberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream followed.
Once opened, the restaurant will serve over 24 local, regional and seasonal craft beers on tap, including Stamford’s own Half-Full Brewery, and dishes unique to the location, such as Dino Poutine with housemade pimento cheese and pulled pork; the Brisket Bleu sandwich with bleu cheese and caramelized and pickled onions; and a Pick-Your-Own Combo, featuring any two or three of Dino’s signature pit-smoked meats.
